It is a sporty and fast car
When I purchased it, it missed and didn't want to go when I accelerated, so took it back to the dealer and they determined that the catalytic converter was plugged, which they replaced under warranty, since then it has performed flawlessly.
Occasionally a low tire light comes on, but after checking the tires, they are OK, good excuse to check the pressure.
The instrument panel sometimes would lose power, but after a few miles would return to normal.
No other problems I can think of.
I bought the car for my wife, she drove it until she passed away in 2007. She always left me in the dust and was out of sight quickly, even though I had another vehicle with the same basic engine, a 3.8 V6.
I think it is extremely fast, and it has very quick steering, sort of like a race car. A slight movement of the steering wheel moves the car decisively. It is fun to drive, and comfortable, lots of leg room.
I made a trip from Oregon to North Dakota November 2nd, and returned November 4th to Oregon this past year just to vote, as I am a resident of ND, and the fuel mileage was unbelievable, I averaged over 31mpg for 1500 miles going, mountains and all, which for a performance vehicle is unreal.
It is white in color, not hard to keep clean, and has all the options including moonroof and heated leather seats. With the spoiler and alloy wheels it is a sharp car.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
